Meet the abc27 News Team

Karissa Shatzer

Karissa joined the abc27 News team in March 2012 as our Lebanon Bureau reporter.

She is a midstate native who grew up in Mechanicsburg. Karissa is beyond excited to work for abc27, the station she grew up watching. As a reporter, everyday is an adventure, and Karissa loves meeting new people and learning new things.

Karissa earned her degree in broadcast journalism from Penn State, where she won awards in the Hearst and Society of Professional Journalists competitions. She also spent every Saturday during football season cheering on the Nittany Lions.

Karissa's favorite time of year is the fall because of the cooler weather, changing leaves, pumpkin-flavored foods, and football.

In her spare time, Karissa enjoys spending time with her family and friends, baking, rocking out to classic rock, relaxing at a coffee shop, and being adventurous.
